After six years at Gardens by the Bay, IndoChine Supertree will shutter by the end of April and turn into an observation deck. The decision was announced on the IndoChine Group’s Facebook page earlier this week, followed by a short explanation by IndoChine Group CEO Michael Ma on his personal profile, which was then replicated on the main page.

It seems the restaurant’s lease was not renewed, and so the company was “force[d] to close down” its “super successful” eatery, despite it being the “best performing” outlet and tenant at Gardens by the Bay, Ma said. Even though the place “exceeded the best sales expectation,” he explained that the folks behind the tourist attraction were intending to turn the prime area at the top of the tallest Supertree into a chill out space for visitors.

According to CNA Lifestyle, the public observatory deck will “allow greater accessibility” and “enable more visitors to enjoy the panoramic views,” said a Gardens by the Bay spokesperson, who also thanked the restaurant for “offering visitors a unique dining experience over the years.” Nonetheless, that didn’t stop Ma from voicing his disgruntled opinion about the restaurant closure on social media, calling out the landlord for its “ridiculous” logic and focus on profits.

Still, if you’d like to bid goodbye to IndoChine Supertree before it closes, there’ll be two sunset farewell parties on the evenings of April 13 and 20. After April, you’ll have to head to the IndoChine restaurant/bar at Chijmes instead.
